It seems that I don't have enough sewing projects on the go already! I have joined the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap, a place for English Paper Piecers (EPP) to make and share Hexagon flowers.

Hexagon flowers can be used to make a range of beautiful quilts, the most traditional being the Grandmothers Flower Garden.

I received the above flowers from Alana in Victoria, Australia, I had asked for flowers with petals that 'read' pink or purple with a neutral centre. Aren't they just great!

These are the first 4 flowers for my quilt, I plan on making a quilt for our queen bed, apparently that requires 3815 hexagons plus 66 half hexagons - 28 down and 3787 hexagons to go!!

|January hexagons for Janet in bright colours|
My swap partner, Janet from Caribou Crossing Chronicles, asked for set's of 12 hexagons to circle around her flowers in bright colours, I hope that these are bright enough!
I am going to just make the few flowers per month at the moment and am still concentrating on the Farmer's Wife Hand piecing project.
